Very heavy, rich and creamy but not my type. I still can find it enjoyable on some occasions though. Feel like this beer will clearly have advocates and critics.

Served from: 14.9 oz can poured into a pint glass.
Easily one of my all time favorites. Looks beautiful, with a nice thick head and dark coloration. Smells great too. The taste is a little watery, but it still tastes strongly of roasted coffee and chocolate. Reminds me of an iced mocha. Goes down very smooth. A classic.

Perfect all day drinking beer. Pasturizing allows for no gas bubbles and easy drinking

Poured from a 14.9 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, there is no "best by" date that I can find.

APPEARANCE: this beer really sets the appearance standard for the style, pours black like my soul with cascading bubbles and a thick two-finger tan head, excellent retention and significant lacing, the carbonation is on the lighter side, perfection.

SMELL: roasted malt, coffee, smokey.

TASTE: the taste is initially smokey, roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate, a little watery, not overpowering.

PALATE: creamy with lighter carbonation.

OVERALL: this beer would have rated higher if not for the watery taste, it has a lot going for it but just does not quite hit the mark, still a very good stout, I like a more subtle tasting stout, I would have this again no problem.
